Meeting with Tulku Urgyen Rimpoche one of the greatest Dzogchen Master of the century.
One of this century's greatest Dzogchen masters was Tulku Urgyen that i meet during my first visit to Nepal with my root teacher/master Namkhai Norbu Rimpoche in 1993.
After receiving teaching and being in the presence of Tulku Urgyen, while staying near Buddhanath stupa, I felt a call to hike in the hills beyond the stupa . At that time it was all country side area, very different from now.
I started to walk and felt that Tulku Urgyen was guiding me to his place, at that time I had no idea where it was, perhaps some place in the mountains. After a couple hours or more, i do not remember, i arrive to a village with a small temple. I ask a monk : is this Tulku Urgyen place, he said yes.
I stayed in total surrender not putting my mind into action, just remaining aware.
Mind would have say lets ask for his house and see if i can meet him physically.
But I knew this was not wright, he guides me up to here so it must be a good reason.
I walk directly to the small temple (Gompa ) opened the door, pay homage then sit assuming the lotus position in front of the shrine and remained there letting myself be infuse by Tulku Urgyen blessings,presence.
He was not there physically, any way in the same room but it was like he was. This was so powerful for me, his blessings and the transmission he gives me at the time remains with me even today.
Thank you . Bless Be

From his book titled As It Is, volume 2, pages 168 and 169:
A student asks: Can there be thinking during Rigpa (Buddha Mind).
Rinpoche: "It is essential to resolve the fact that there is no namtog (thought) whatsoever in the state of rigpa; it is impossible..... I cannot emphasize this enough - there is no thought during the state of rigpa!"
From the book Rainbow Painting:
"When there are no thoughts whatsoever, then you are a Buddha"
"Thinking only begins after marigpa (ignorance) sets in, at the loss of rigpa. During the non distraction of rigpa, no thought can begin. I cannot emphasize this enough —there is no thought during the state of rigpa!"
"Honestly, there is nothing more amazing than this recognition of rigpa in which no thought can remain."
